When I speak of the "earliest accounts I possess of my progenitors," authentic information is meant only; for, like other races, we have certain dark legends that might possibly carry us back again to the old world in quest of our estates and privileges.
The embarkation, or shipment of my progenitors, whichever may be the proper expression, occurred in the height of the last general war, and, for a novelty, it occurred in an English ship.
Yet, might I presume to say so, the gem would make a rare sepulchral lamp, and would display the glories of your lordship's progenitors more truly in the ancestral vault than in the castle hall.
As the purpose of this remarkable avenue dawned upon me I could not but admire the native shrewdness of the ancient progenitor of the Mezops who hit upon this novel plan to throw his enemies from his track and delay or thwart them in their attempts to follow him to his deep-buried cities.
We may often falsely attribute to correlation of growth, structures which are common to whole groups of species, and which in truth are simply due to inheritance; for an ancient progenitor may have acquired through natural selection some one modification in structure, and, after thousands of generations, some other and independent modification; and these two modifications, having been transmitted to a whole group of descendants with diverse habits, would naturally be thought to be correlated in some necessary manner.
In new studies being presented by Geron scientists at the ISSCR meeting, the hESC-derived oligodendroglial progenitors are shown to produce neurotrophic factors which can induce growth of axons, the portion of the neuron that acts as a conduit for impulse conduction.
Intravital Imaging Reveals Ghost Fibers as Architectural Units Guiding Myogenic Progenitors during Regeneration," Cell Stem Cell, December 2015 DOI: 10.
Researchers have isolated the earliest cardiovascular progenitors that arise during the differentiation of pluripotent stem cells.
This places the spotlight on errant luminal progenitors, rather than breast stem cells.
Cellerant's second program is a unique cell-based biologic, Myeloid Progenitors (MP), which is being developed for the treatment of cancer chemotherapy- and radiation-induced neutropenia, a life-threatening condition associated with severe damage to the blood-forming system.
AmCyte has demonstrated that endocrine progenitors are enriched in islets in comparison to other pancreatic tissues based on the expression of critical transcription factors and potential progenitor markers.
Acquiring a sufficient number of progenitor cells has been difficult, however, which is why scientists have considered induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), since they can be expanded at significantly high levels and then differentiated into the progenitors.
We also plan to initiate clinical trials for our first cell-based product - human Myeloid Progenitors for the treatment of radiation- and chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.
The findings expand the basic scientific knowledge of how the mammalian heart develops and should speed research in this area, not least because scientists now have a definitive marker, Hopx, that they can use to isolate the cardiomyoblast progenitors that specifically make heart muscle cells.
Geron Corporation (Nasdaq:GERN) announced today the publication of studies showing that oligodendrocyte progenitors, differentiated from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), produce functional improvements in rats with spinal cord injuries.
